1988 Mercedes-Benz R107 500SL with Blue Check (072)

Diamond Blue (355) with Blue Check (072) / 500SL

Principal Facts:

Previously sold by SLSHOP to its present owner, this 1988 500SL in Diamond Blue with Blue Sports Check interior trim has covered just under 69,000 miles since it was first registered. Enjoyed by its present owner since 2016, its back with us to find someone else to enjoy this nicely specified, fine driving example of the R107 SL.

Condition Synopsis:

There’s no greater proof that taking a bit of care and attention can have you looking as good in your mid-30s as you did in your prime. This car exemplifies that, because you’d be hard pushed to believe the number on its odometer. Looking and feeling fit, we’d be lying if we said it was absolutely perfect, but the imperfections are so slight you really, really need to be looking for them. Overall, then, it presents beautifully, with its Blue Sports Check interior suiting its Diamond Blue paintwork and bright chrome. The hood is like new, with no cracks or crazing of the windows, with the hardtop also being in fantastic condition. A car that SLSHOP has sold before, and maintained since, its next owner will be getting a fabulous car.

History File:

The box file that accompanies this car might not be as thick with receipts and paperwork as some of the other cars here, but the history that does accompany it highlights careful, no-expense spared ownership. That much is obvious by its condition, too.

SLSHOP Summary:

A car we’re familiar with, having sold it to its current customer, who’s enjoyed it for the past eight years, and kept it in fabulous condition during their tenure. It’s ready now for its next owner to do the same, this superb example in a pleasing colour and trim certain not to be in our showroom for very long.

I have followed SLSHOP with interest for some years now and recently took the plunge and purchased my dream car – they did not disappoint!
The whole experience from start to finish was superb. Their communication was excellent and they kept me
informed every step of the way. Thank you and I look forward to my next purchase!

I have just purchased a 280SL from SLSHOP. I have already purchased several parts from SLSHOP and have found all members of staff most helpful and it is more like dealing with a club than a commercial enterprise I would highly recommend using SLSHOP for cars, parts and most importantly impartial advice.

They put up with my indecision, inexperience and last minute demands and my car is the best thing I’ve ever bought. The most impressive thing about them is the after care though. Nothing is ever too much trouble and they’ve given me the best advice to make sure I get the most out of my car. Can you tell I’m obsessed with them all?
